Demetrious Johnson Bio – 2018 Update

Hailing from Washington, Demetrious Johnson participated in several sports growing up including cross country, track, and wrestling. Eventually getting involved with mixed martial arts in his early twenties, he made his professional debut in 2007, where he won his initial match via first-round knockout. From there, he eventually made his World Extreme Cafe-fighting (WEC) debut in 2010, where he went up against Brad Pickett. Some of the other opponents that he faced off against during this time included Cint Godfrey and Damacio Page. Later that year, it was announced that WEC would be merging with the Ultimate Fighting Championship.

Today, Johnson is the Flyweight champion, having defeated Joseph Benavidez in 2012. Since his fateful victory, he has fought against several other opponents on the ring including John Dodson, John Moraga, and Chris Cariaso. Hailed as one of the greatest mixed martial artists of all time, he is not only recognized for his quick and elusive movement but is also known for his ability to counterstrike the other fighter. Incredibly popular in the MMA world, it’s not surprising to know that he has well over a million fans across the globe.
